Travel Medical Expense Coverage for People with Medicare

Many people are unaware that the Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid Programs may not provide coverage for hospital or medical expenses incurred outside the United States.

For travelers who are injured or who become seriously ill overseas, obtaining medical treatment and hospital care can be very costly and difficult. In 2012, the average cost for a hotel stay was $4,000 per day*, and an air ambulance from North America can cost upward of $20,000 for one-way travel alone.
